The Council approved the Proposed Single Family Home New Construction Incentive. This is an EDA request to waive sewer connection fees. Zimmer clarified that this applies only to “brand new connections”.

Deb Zimmer showed the Council the Industrial Park Preliminary Plat, and described the plans for connecting Peterson to Casten Drive. Council members discussed the project, centering on the fact that that there’s an unexpectedly large amount of “black dirt” that needs to be moved, which increased the cost projections. Zimmer said, “We already have the base amount set aside” and stated that the City would just need to decide about covering the additional expense. The Council unanimously approved Resolution 2015-10 to advertise for bids on the Industrial Park Expansion. Bids will be accepted through 11 a.m. on March 5, and will be considered by the Council at the next meeting after that.

Library Department Head Jenny Simon updated the Council on news and happenings at the library, including the newly obtained copier/fax machine, and the upcoming “Hot reads for Cold Nights” program, which starts February 2. She also stated, “We did get a grant from the Fisher Foundation, so we’ll be getting new computers for our patrons.” She also mentioned there is one rural position open on the library board.

Tim Rasmussen reported on the equipment to be installed in the new squad car. He said a second video camera may be needed, to replace one that’s obsolete. It would cost around $5000 including installation.

Bill Bires reported that “There have been a few visits” regarding changes with the Ambulance Association. He summarized that, “There’s been a little miscommunication, but it’s been taken care of.” The meeting adjourned about 6:30 pm.
